    It would be easy to practice the way he was doing it, no chance of being hurt. It`s more timing as your reflexes should be fast enough to catch it (imo)

    If I could do that, I would go back in time and tell a bunch of archers that they suck and that I wanna be the new king. But I would prolly bring a few M4s with me so I really wouldent need to be able to catch an arrow cause id just shoot them with my magical death stick... I want a time machine.

    To gain this kind of reflexes he must have trained a lot in the poluted pounds why a lot of flies surrounding him! Afterwards he must have probably started catching tenis balls. That`s my assumption!

    They didn`t show the whole story. The guy has had tons of practice and he gets a warning to know when to grab. It`s a little skill and a lot of luck. Try watching it live, he doesn`t get them all. They just showed the one he did finally catch.

    Devi3000 you should try this but with a cannon bullet. And you should be put in front of it tied to a post so you would have to escape the roap dodge the bullet and catch it with your teeth...or let yourself die! Anyway it would be fun to watch.

    mythbusters, watch it. they tried it with a compound bow and found it to be impossible, notice they used a longbow not fully pulled back. theres your answer. and yeah, ok he did have SOME reflexes needed to catch it at that speed but it is humanly impossible to catch an arrow going at full speed.

    The fact they used a long bow is one thing, but look at the lenght of the arrow and the head and flights on it too, they are huge compared to a normal arrow and are designed to slow it down enough to make it easier to catch, my instructor used to do the same thing at displays

    Arrow Speed and human strength/dexterity are hard to surmise for a practical scientific study. All three could have been different then "myth busters" test.

    I`ve seen this done before and I`ve seen it stuffed up. Arrow speed is REALLY important.

    This is just another attempt by Japanese tv to make themselves look uber. The bullet splitting katana, this, etc, its not exactly hard to do these things, all swords can cut bullets, and anyone can catch an arrow.

    Anyone with average 0.25 second reflexes could do that with practice. Just need to learn when to go for the catch. That was a rather long recurve bow anyway..a shorter one would provide a lot more speed, especially if the guy was actually pulling to his full draw length. That`d make it a lot more difficult.

    Anyways, I hate Japanese television (minus the game shows) usually. The stupid lettering everywhere (although we in America do have it on the bottom of our screen, just not nearly as much), the stupid sound effects, the way they do that negative image thing with the faces... agg it sucks. It`s like, ok... I can see how people would be insulted by having a laugh track tell them when to laugh, but it seems the Japanese need a little pop up window that has a person in it to tell them how to react. *sigh*
